I had the honor and pleasure of hearing countercultural woman, Civil Rights activist, and all-around amazing trailblazer Angela Davis speak at the Women’s March on Washington. So to kick off Black History Month and for this week’s Wednesday Wisdom,  I am pleased to share this quote of hers (which also appeared on many a protest sign at the march)!

“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change. I am changing the things I cannot accept.” -Angela Davis

Let’s march on, y’all! We are in great company and have amazing predecessors to learn from and guide us.
